and that because of joe biden, because of michael bloomberg, because of former congressman gabrielle giffords that there is a possibility of doing something now or is it simply the possibility of beginning the conversation? >> the it seems like it was the beginning of a conversation that would end in failure even two, three weeks back. if you talked to people that were inside the white house and working with joe biden i don't think there was a lot of hope that they thought they could ever get through an assault weapon ban in the house and the senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes

, she gets an f. >> that ad, that pressure ad comes from new york city mayor michael bloomberg's pro-gun reform superpac. it's part of his campaign to build support in congress for meaningful national gun reform. and you know what? it appears to be working. once that ad started running in her district, debbie halvorson, who had said she would not be moved on this issue, debbie halvorson moved on this issue. ms. halvorson telling buzzfeed, quote, my win will not be a victory for the nra. how can it be a victory for the nra when i'm for universal background checks, beefing up the database, going after straw buyers and making sure we register our guns. those are not things the nra wants. that's true. those are not things the nra wants. and that is probably going to make it hard to hold on to that nra "a" rating. but maybe that's not the most important thing in the world anymore? in the debate over gun policy and gun laws, we are supposed to believe that the only real pressure on this issue comes from the nra, who of course always push against reform. but there is pressure on the other s

as well, and it's not just michael bloomberg's pac. we reported recently on new democratic senator heidi heitkamp. well, the coalition to start gun violence started running these ads in washington, d.c. and back home in north dakota, calling senator heitkamp out for having said that. senator heitkamp then issued a statement clarifying her feelings, saying, quote, all options must be on the table when it comes to addressing gun violence in america. heidi heitkamp responding to pressure, just the way debbie "not budging" halvorson responded to pressure when she discovered a sudden new-found willingness to advocate for background checks for guns, nra be damned. pressure worked. pressure works. pressure works not just for the nra, but for the other side too. well, today in washington, the senate judiciary committee convened a hearing, a very high profile hearing with a title that was ambitiously broad, "what should we do about gun violence?" five witnesses on both sides of the issue offered expert testimony. those witnesses included nra executive vice president wayne lapierre, naturally. way

had equivalent power and you have things like michael bloomberg saying i will spend money, the same money the nra is spending. the pressure is different and i think the democrats and republicans who sort of have been in the nra camp are feeling pressure they never felt before. the nra doesn't have the power they used to. by the way, they didn't do that well. the candidates they supported during the election, their margin wasn't very good. >> and reading lapierre's comments, they weren't necessarily as incendiary when he really defended the rights of people -- the message is the same but the way he's saying is a little more subdued. >> it goes to our point here, they are under pressure. they are at attack with president obama with the security of his daughters back fired horribly. the audience is the hard core ar-15 owner, it's those in the middle that support gun rights but support gun safety and oppose crime. i think again, there is some pressure here on the nra to put more of a foot forward that can appeal to people beyond their core membership. >> let me bring in kentucky congres

a special report coming out on the gun debate. on the cover, three gun control advocates, michael bloomberg, vice president joe biden, and former congresswoman gabrielle giffords. richard stengel is "time's" managing editor. tell me, do you think they can change the conversation and actually get something done, or is this going to be sort of blowing in the wind? >> i think newtown, andrea, really did change the conversation. it was so heinous, so disruptive, so disturbing that people have started to look at gun control, gun regulation in a different way. i think the administration, i think the three gun fighters on our cover believe that they can now marshal the great middle of america, even the majority of legal gun owners in america for common sense regulation, for closing the gun show loophole, for having better background checks and all of that sort of thing. i think this is the moment, and i think they will get something done. >> at the same time, in pennsylvania, which is a big gun-supporting state, we've got a big gun show in february, the annual gun show, the people who manage that

districts across america. not just from michael bloomberg but obviously from gabby giffords' efforts and others. and you're going to see whatever money the nra spends in 2014 you'll see that double, triple, quadrupled from people who support sensible gun control. so what once was the safe vote in a lot of districts is no longer going to be the safe vote. and i can tell you, chris, i know a thing or two about politics. republicans got angry with me over the past year when i told them mitt romney was in trouble. i can tell you something. in 2014 in my district in northwest florida, a district jerry fall wwell called the most conservative in america, there's no doubt this would be the right move for me to run as a fiscally conservative republican, a pro-life republican who has said enough to survivalists and extremists. the second amendment is about protecting our homes and hunting with our friends and family members. it's not about military-styled assault weapons that ended up killing, you know, 6-year-old and 7-year-old kids in connecticut. >> i'm on your side. thank you joe scarborou

of new york city mayor michael bloomberg have often had provisions and then for gun registration and many other violations of the civil liberties of law-abiding persons such as allowing gun bans for people accused but acquitted of drug crimes. universal background checks should be available. it was a wise move by president obama in his january 16 press conference to begin changes in federal drug -- regulations to allow the private sellers to access the background check system v licensed firearm dealers. many people would take advantage of that and i commend them but mandating universal checks can only be enforceable if there is universal gun registration and we know that universal gun registration in every country in the world where it has existed has been a serious peril to gun ownership. universal gun registration was imposed by canada in 1995 and was later repealed in 2012 by the canadian parliament because it was such a fiasco. if we want to save lives right now, there is only one thing that will stop the next copycat killer in the lawful armed self-defense and the schools not only by

. comments on bloomberg. >> i was just going to make another point about a kind of influence michael has, which is he has so much standing in the business community. he was out in chicago and did a session with bill daly on the need for immigration reform. he's been, as you were talking about, extraordinarily outspoken on the gun issue, that he is one of those people that is bringing the business community to bear separate from the far right of the republican party. and some of these issues that used to be thought of as divisive issues among democrats are now divisive issues among republicans. and michael's outspokenness on it has helped rally the business community around some of the need for reform which i think is interesting. >> there was always talk about potentially running for president. he's got the money and also the -- i would say the drive on key issues, immigration, guns, food, the health of our country, to make his own place in history. >> yes. and i think he's -- i've known him since his days on just the media side, and there's no question that he wants to stay engaged in t
